"This recipe quickly became a favorite in my house. I use a small (8oz) can of tomato sauce instead of the pizza sauce and it works out just fine. It reheats well too. Now that we have two children I usually make it on evenings when my husband is out of town. Its quick, easy and it only dirties one dish!"
